Showdown at Rickwood|
- Art Black
$25.00 (Hardcover) Blue Rooster Press, 2017
Showdown at Rickwood celebrates the beginnings and growth of a minor league baseball team that weathered the First World War and the start of the Great Depression. The book recounts tales of a group of baseball players, names as familiar as Pie Traynor, Burleigh Grimes, and Dizzy Dean. Other names, like Pop Boy Smith, Billy Bancroft, and Carlton Molesworth, are not so recognizable. But all of them come alive in this captivating story of a hard-won championship played at a ball park that is now America’s oldest.
